Phnom Penh Photo 2012 –Hoeng Keomakara

Preview

This photographer wants photography to take us beyond what the eye can see. He wants to expand our field of vision so that we can see the world, the real world, up close and differently. He therefore chose the panorama format which, when extended, enables him to capture in a single frame various features that conventional formats do not make possible to bring together. But since he doesn’t have a panoramic device, he put together a makeshift one by putting two pieces of cardboard over his lens. This way, he does not have to reframe his images when focusing. He gives us, night or day, the daily routine of Phnom Penh, in another approach of the city, mixing scenes with characters and views simply punctuated with the repetition of identical elements and he tells us about the urban space as it waits to be discovered. We just wish to go along with him with our eyes wide open.
